(pronounced SEH-tehl)

Similar to a settee in that it’s a piece of furniture that seats more than one person, a settle is a little more archaic and a little less comfortable. The term refers to a long, wooden bench with arms and a tall, solid back that can be elaborately carved or incredibly plain. Often the area underneath the seat is enclosed so that it can be used for storage.
